No Shame In A Little Retail Therapy


About 2 weeks ago Ulta was having a one-day deal on the Cargo Beach Blushes. Instead of  the usual $30 price tag, they were 50% off at a much more reasonable $15. Since I was contemplating on purchasing one anyways, I quickly jumped on the opportunity and bought 2. The ones I picked up were Coral Beach and Sunset Beach.



The Beach Blushes are suppose to be a blush that is the perfect mix between a blush and bronzer, giving you the flush of a blush but the warmth of a bronzer. Depending on which stripes you use, you can get different colors but the swatches above are all 4 stripes blended together. Coral Beach is a coral bronze color and Sunset Beach is a pink bronze.

Last week Ulta had all NYX and Revlon products 40% off. I also took advantage of that and my lip color addiction continues...


The Revlon Lip Butters were reduced from $7.49 to $4.49 and since my local Walgreens *still* doesn't have these in stock yet, so I only ordered 4 of them cause I know I'll eventually pick up a few more. Not going to talk about these too much since pretty much everyone has talked about these at one point or another. Creamsicle is a peachy-pale orange nude, Creme Brulee is a tan beige, Strawberry Shortcake is mid-tone bubblegum pink and Candy Apple is a warm apple red. 




Along with the Revlon Lip Butters, I got 5 of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, which were reduced from $5.99 to $3.59. I've been wearing Antwerp while putting this post together and sipping on some tea and it's held up incredibly well for the past 2 and a half hours of wearing it. The texture of it is quite different as well, it's hard to describe. It does dry to a matte finish but it isn't unbearably dry (I'm looking at you MAC matte lipsticks!) Tokyo is a pale pink, Stockholm is a brownish peach, Antwerp is a coral-pink, San Paulo is a berry and Addis Ababa is a hot pink with tiny blue micro-glitter.



Last but not least, I got 6 of the NYX Xtreme Lip Creams that were also reduced from $5.99 to $3.59. The Xtreme Lip Creams are like liquid lipsticks. I guess you can say it is a glossy version of the Matte Lip Creams. Natural is a beige nude, Nude Peach Fuzz is a peachy pink, Buttery Nude is a is a brownish-peach, Candy Land is a mid-tone bubblegum pink, Dolly Girl is a hot pink and Strawberry Jam is a bright strawberry pink. 


Along with the lip products I also got Revlon Top Speed Nail Polish that was reduced from $5.99 to $3.59. It's in the color Jaded. I've been wanting this nail polish for forever now but it never seemed to be on sale when I was in the store. It's a lovely mint color that is fully opaque in 3 coats. 

I absolutely love everything I got, especially the bright lip colors and completely recommend all of the products. Until next time, goodbye everyone!
